Have you downloaded the latest drivers for your modem? This should fix the problem.

Hi

Is it a USB modem? and do you have any other usb periphals connected? I have very similar spec to you, found a problem with the USB ports on k7s5a most things connected to it will cause XP(why did I bother!) to hang. Still haven`t resolved the problem though, so any help would be welcomed too. The computer does shutdown but the "shutting down" screen remains, just won't power off. Works fine under Win98 so my guess is a USB driver is needed for XP, but I haven't found one yet :-(

sorry

RE: wont shut down since adsl

XP randomly powers off. Microsoft removed something because with previous OS it could not perfect the art of actually making the PC switch off. So all PC's can make it to the black screen with "you may now switch off your computer" but not all will power off.

As for the modem, which one you using? I use Alcatel Speedtouch USB and I make it to the power down screen fine but then I have to manually turn the PC off.
